## Homework Statement

A typical sonic boom is a solitary N wave with a peak to peak pressure amplitude of 2 lbf/ft^2 and a wavelength of 50 ft. Find the maximum particle displacement.

## Homework Equations

None

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've found some equations on the internet. For instance, I have the speed of the wave (u) (that I should then differentiate to get the particle displacement I think...):

u = p * C0 * rho0

or

u = c0 * S

I can't manage anyhting with these equations and I can't find anything representing the sound wave of the problem on a graph. I can't visualize the problem at all.

Could anyone give me some tips or explanations on this problem?

Thank you
